has been embarrassing for the obama administration at a time when it hardly needs more bad news. is it more than an embarrassment? should it raise alarms abroad and at home? at first glance this is a story that is less about ethics and more about power. the great power gap between the united states and other countries, even rich european ones. the most illuminating response came from the former foreign minister of france. he said in a radio interview, let's be honest. we eavesdrop, too. everyone is listening to everyone else. he went on to add, "we don't have the same means as the united states which makes us jealous." america spends tens of billions of dollars on intelligence collection. it's hard to get data to make good comparisons but it is safe to assume that washington's intelligence budget dwarfs that of other countries just as it does with defense spending. it is particularly strange that this rift should develop between the united states and its closest allies in europe. it was predictable and in fact in a sense predicted. in 2002, the british diplomat robert cooper wrote a

reporting that the spying on chancellor merkel and other world leaders stopped after the obama administration launched an investigation. "the wall street journal" quoted a senior u.s. official as saying the nsa made the surveillance decisions. the newspaper says the official account of what happened suggests president obama went nearly five years without knowing about the spying on world leaders. it reports obama was briefed on broader intelligence collection priorities, but didn't make decisions on specific targets. and it says the president only learned of the spying after his administration launched internal and external probes of national security agency operations a few months ago. the decision followed revelations by former nsa contractor, edward snowden, who said agents had been secretly gathering the phone and internet data of private citizens. u.s. officials tell "the wall street journal" that american agents have suspended spying on merkel and other world loaders, but they say the agency is still monitoring other leaders because some of the programs are producing usef

answered on this topic. unofficially as we know with the obama administration they communicate mainly with leaks to the press. the latest one is to the wall street journal which said that president obama discovered the world leaders being surveyed after an internal review discovered that in the summertime. president obama then asked for the surveillance of angela merkel's phone to be cease. not so with various world leaders if there are other world leaders watching right now you are not out of the woods yet. this is a push back from germany media that president obama was briefed about the surveillance in 2010. not only did the president say that surveillance should continue, he ordered that intelligence come from out of that surveillance come directly to the white house and out of the national security agency. we expect the press briefing from the white house, the official line to come in the coming hours. >> and there is an european delegation come together white house today. what do they hope to accomplish? >> reporter: we should bear in mind that this delegation has long been organized.

internal president obama administration memos showed that won't solve the problem. because the same portal is used to determine eligibility no matter how the application is submitted, paper or online. one memo says the paper applications allow people to feel they are moving forward in the process and provides another option. at the end of the day, we are all stuck in the same queue. today the white house insisted frustrated consumers can turn to navigators to complete applications for them. >> we never said the end point of the process wouldn't have to go through healthcare.gov. >> reporter: that means your personal information has to maneuver a complex online maze. first the website must be accessed. then all personal data has to be registered and verified. next the system must determine eligibility for government subsidies. that information lets consumers shop for a plan. when you finally choose a policy, all that data must be translated into a different format that the insurance companies can read. >> this program will crumble if you don't find ways to deal with the fundamental c

. remember the rumors that the obama administration was considering booting vice president biden off the ticket in favor of hillary clinton? you thought it was crazy cable news chatter. not so much. obama's chief of staff at the time william daley was actively pushing the idea and his quote, he was vocal about looking in to a whole bunch of things and this was one of them. you have to remember at that point the president was in awful shape so we were like holy christ, what do we do. that's a quote. fortunately for the vice president, research suggested the move was not going to help the president's chances. also in the book, mitt romney was seriously considering chris christie for vice president but the campaign ruled help out due to unanswered questions about his background and his health. president obama has disdain for rubbing elbows not just reserved for republicans. he could not name his campaign top bunk letters and after meeting with gorm sore rows, he allegedly said if we don't get anything out of him, he would never sit with him again. the book also details the complicated relat
